Goldhaber, Dan; Cowan, James; Long, Mark; Huntington-Klein, Nick – Center for Education Data & Research, 2015
Students are typically given a large amount of freedom to choose the level of "curricular dispersion": the tight focus or lack thereof in the courses they elect to take while in college. There is little evidence about what predicts students' curricular dispersion, whether it affects later college or labor force outcomes, or, in fact, how…

Clayson, Dennis E. – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2014
This research looks closely at claims that ratemyprofessors.com creates a valid measure of teaching effectiveness because student responses are consistent with a learning model.
